Re: pop langs website ranking

P: n/a
I have updated the computing sites popularity ranking, based on both and

The whole report nicely formatted in HTML is here:

The following is a summary of some highlights.

the relative popularity of the following sites is roughly this:

This is just sites i'm familiar or used to or comes to mind. There are
of course many other popularly used computing sites.

Alexa's data is more reliable than quantcast. Quantcast often has very
bad info as of current. However, alexa's data does not seems reliable
in some absolute sense.

The one question that puzzles me is why is ranked so high,
since as far as i know it isn't that much of a active site for news,
blog, wiki, or anything. The only reason i can think of is that lots

they are about a bit higher than, as expected.

I'm not clear what's the relative popularity of,, and Before alexa changed their ranking algorithm recently, is ranked high above (a ranking of 500 vs 900), but
now alexa shows that has about 10 times more visitors than Quantcast's data on these 3 sites is more bewilding. For
example, it estimates that has 5 million unique visitors per
month, while giving 1.5 M only, and php only 78 k. I think
quantcast's data here is quite fuckd.
